Good News Club FAQs

Good News Club meets once a week at a local FCPS school from October to April. We can't wait for next school year! God loves you. We love you!

Can we really teach about Jesus in our public schools?

Yes! The Gospel has been taught freely in public schools all over the world for some time. Now children in the U.S. have that opportunity, too! In 2001 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Good News Clubs v. Milford Central School that Good News Clubs can meet in public schools in the United States after school hours on the same terms as other community groups. Children attend Good News Club only with their parents’ permission.

What can the Good News Club do for our community?

A Good News Club can identify a home in the neighborhood that is safe for a child to go to in times of trouble. It brings the teaching of biblical morality to his / her neighborhood. It connects the child and their family to others where they live developing a healthy community spirit. When we teach God’s Love to children in our community, our community experiences God's Love too!

What is taught in Good News Club?

Each week an exciting Bible lesson using colorful materials from Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) is presented. This action-packed time also includes songs, Scripture memory, a missions story and review games or other activities focused on the lesson’s theme.
Each club includes a clear and age- appropriate presentation of the Gospel and an opportunity for children to trust the Lord Jesus as Savior. Every club also includes strong discipleship training to help build character and strengthen moral and spiritual growth. All children are encouraged to attend a local church.

Who teaches Good News Club?

Our WCC volunteers are Christian men and women who care about kids! Together, they volunteer their time and energy to teach Good News Club. They are trained by Child Evangelism Fellowship to have a club that is exciting and informative. Teachers are asked to sign the CEF Statement of Faith and agree to abide by the policies of the organization.
